We made it on Thursday to the opening of the show Darkness Descends: Scandinavian Art Now curated by Christina Vassallo. Our friend Marius Watz had three of his pieces in the show and performed with/vs Alexander Rishaug. His responsive visuals were absolutely stunning.

I had forgotten to upload these images on Zaha’s Pavilion. It was definitely good walking through it, too bad though that (most of) the art was just, mediocre to say the least.

Looking through my pictures of the past visit to P.S.1, I found this picture of one of the greatest pieces currently on display. I can’t really remember the artist’s name (nor the piece’s name for that matter) but its simplicity, its economy of means and its in-your-face-ness are what make it completely astounding to walk through. It’s in the second floor, so if you have a chance to visit the museum, don’t miss it.
Sunday afternoon, after The Flood, we took the water taxi from the South Street Seaport to check out all of Olafur Eliasson’s Waterfalls.
First of all, DON’T take the water taxi to view them… Everything makes it sound like the main purpose of their waterfalls tour is, well, the waterfalls…but this is just the same touristy water taxi that goes to Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, etc. and then breezes through the falls. I guess I should have known better.
Now that that is out of the way, on to the waterfalls. The waterfalls were, uhmm, niehh… I’m not sure I’ll be able to pinpoint exactly what it is, but there might be a few issues that make it all unimpressive and just uninteresting.

Today was the opening for Cooper Union’s end of year show. I got to walk around the architecture and art shows and saw a lot of beautiful models, some great drawings, and a few fun/smart pieces of art.
The one above was one of my favorites: a hand crank break dancer + MC Hammer zoetrope. Can’t beat it.
